of the freedom and justice party, the organization that president mohamed morsi is politically affiliated with. now, the anger stems from the decree that president morsi issued. that degree gave him the ability to legislate powers without any type of judicial review. the president says you have to take those measures because egypt's judiciary is full of remnants of the old regime and pro-mubarak-appointed judges. that's why according to him there's a slow transition to democracy. the other opponents of this decree are saying that president morsi is doing nothing than simply grabbing more power and reverting the country to dictatorship. human rights organizations have expressed great concern. there was, however, some indication the situation can be resolved politically. late last night president morsi met with the country's top judges, and they agreed to narrowly define the scope of how he uses this decree. but on the streets today, millions are expected, at least tens of thousands are expected to show up in tahrir square, a protest has been canceled to avoid any possible clashes. lynn? >> ayma
